Unfortunately, an accident can bring disruption and unanticipated expense to even the most organised business. Time off the road can lead to revenue loss due to reduced productivity, in addition to repair costs to cover vehicle damage.

It is estimated that downtime as a result of a road accident causes small-medium sized fleets to lose the equivalent of five working days every year, along with £6,000 worth of repairs.

This is especially worrying for small businesses, as increasing competition and tight margins mean that customers could switch to a rival company if their service is disrupted.

Although there’s no way to entirely prevent fleet downtime, there are some steps fleet managers can take to reduce the risk. We’ve created a guide packed with insights to help you keep your drivers on the road and your customers happy.
